Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron in Sweet November: Saturday's Favorite Movie Moment
The song is Enya's-Only time
This Saturday's favorite movie moment is actually a bunch of movie moments from Sweet November accompanied by the song Only Time from Enya. Sweet November, stars Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves in addition to an array of some great looking dogs.
An excellent film, Sweet November reminds us to stop and remember what a true gift life is...Keanu Reeves character discovers through the lead character (Theron) the true meaning of friendship and our God given potential to give compassion and love to each other, animals, and even wayward strangers...
There are no words or seconds to waste while we're here on earth, and yet we waste a lot of them, hence this movie reminds us to make all of our moments count...
Soak up every laugh, smile, glance...from the ones you love and others, and give every part of yourself to everything possible. Because what you give to the world and others will remain a part life itself, like the soil that nurtures the trees and the soul that planted the seed.
Live for and in every dance, hug, song, and person...with the imaginable mind and open heart of a child.
I will run on my beach until I reach the end of the shoreline; and then I will wait and see what God will ask of me next...
That's my plan, except I believe I'll take a Golden Retriever with me, and Simon of course.
However, until that time, I refuse to take myself seriously...and that is the one thing I loved about this movie and the main character, if you haven't seen it, rent it-
This movie reviewer believes this movie is equivalent to the following: Three scoops(thats the most scoops suggested, so that's a lot) of peanut butter swirl, a dance on the beach, a huge summer hat, and a copy of Confederacy Of Dunces. by, John Kennedy Toole/with a foreword by Walker Percy. I think that's the most I've given a movie so far...hmmm
Make a splash out of your day~

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
